Thank you Gui for putting such a big smile on my furry friend's fuzzy face. He says you know more about sailing in your little finger than he in his whole body .... thank you for sharing some of it with him (your sailing knowledge that is, not your little finger!).
May I also take this opportunity to thank you for your instruction videos....as a novice sailor eager to learn, I'm an avid fan. Keep them coming please!
Obrigado from Ms Wombat!
This is a Ms. Wombat diversion. Send in a lovely lady to a room full of guys... I've seen this one before... She may know the real reefing story. Look at those pics... does that look like reefing weather?

Something Fishy with this one....

Come On!

Charlie's last adventure spooked him...he didn't want to damage his sails because they were bought from a german second hand store... However I find it ironic this time he has wind and no pictures of speed of Guiletta...hmmmm normally he would be posting that I think maybe Wombat is making him honest now!

Faster Sounds like fun....

Valiente Finally, some wind!

Good thing you had an Australian with you, Alex. They are used to excessive wind....

teshannon Sounds like it was a great day Giu. I'm sure a lot of us wished we were there, I know I do.
